Whatevah. It'll probably all be melted by tomorrow. More "wintry mix" on its way for Friday, just in time to ruin lots of weekend plans, including this and this.
In the meantime the kit for this finally arrived today - whoo hoo! UPS got it here after 5 pm so I can't tell in the dim light of my house, but those yarn colors look a LOT darker here than they do in the picture. I'll take a good hard look tomorrow in the daylight, and perhaps take a fo-to or two.
And I blame Grumperina for my latest yarn acquisition. In a post earlier this week she referred to a scarf she made this summer using some incredibly soft yarn. And so, I had to find some for myself. And, so I did. Of course, I had to get it in colors more suited to my taste, which, if you've read some of my previous posts, you'll know it leans to blue-green/teal. So... I ordered a couple balls of this:
That is Berroco Plush Colors # 1958, "Taffy". As Kathy indicated, it is a good, soft, next-to-the-neck yarn, so in the tradition of novice knitters everywhere, (including this one), it will be, yes, you guessed it, a scarf. Garter stitch, no less. Shocking, I know. But I can't wait to knit this up. It should be here by Thursday or Friday, I think. Yay.
